Ch 16 Managing Medical Devices within a Regulatory Framework

What is it about?

This chapter discusses when to consider health economic strategies, different types of economic assessments, and ideas on how to disseminate value based evidence for differing stakeholders. There is also a case study presented which describes how health economics can be used to support market access and reimbursement.

Why is it important?

Health economics is becoming increasingly important as a strategic focus area for medical device companies. Timely assessment of evidence needs (e.g., health economics, clinical outcomes) based on input from varying stakeholders early in the product development process is a prominent factor. Health economic needs may vary in scope, including budget impact analysis, cost effectiveness, and other strategies to illustrate product value.
